Well, in my main living room system, I went from not having a sub for about a year to a Submersive HP.

Dual dayton sub100 - moved to pc 5.1
Dual a2-300 - used in media room

Most likely will diy for any future upgrades. Although the epic legends for 400$ looked promising but I missed out on the deal.

DIY servo amp using Infinity IRS woofer, my own custom design and electronics, amp was a bridged Hafler, ca. 1980.
Rythmik F12 (pair), ca. 2010.

A Mirage and Infinity sub passed through as backups and in other systems still around the house, and numerous ones were put in for a trial when I was working in the biz, but my primary system path was short and sweet.

Paradigm PS-1000
Mirage BPS 400
M&K MX-125 MKII

I wish I could have kept the BPS-400, as that beast moved a lot of air and out performed the M&K MX-125. Unfortunately, I had to get rid because the auto on/off kept toggling during movies, and sub would always turn on too late with a pop sound and turn off too early.

1. BIC 12" (don't remember the model)
2. Klipsch KSW12 x2 with HSU TN1220HO with 500W Amp. I then moved to a home without a dedicated theater, so I sold them. I wish I didn't sell the TN1220HO though.
3. HSU VTF2.3 with a stereo receiver.
4. Klipsch SW310
5. SVS SB12NSD (current in family room)
6. Rythmik FV15HP (550W) (current in a dedicated theater room). Hope it stops here.

I would never go back to using just one sub - the benefits of two are so worthwhile in my room and IMO. Now I have the dual Submersives, I believe my sub journey has ended.

No offense but if I had seen that thread I probably would not have responded. You were asking way too much of anyone who was going to post in it. People want to type what they want and go.
